Hi all thought I would write a little message before we head off on our travels tomorrow. We are so glad to have finally finished work and now can relax and have had some fun planning where we are going to go to next. Tomorrow we are off to Christchurch and then on th Transalpine train to Greymouth, then on Saturday we are hiking up the Fox Glacier.
We had a good leaving night out yesterday and ended up in town with the backpackers which was an experience. Today we got treated to a wonderful lunch from Rob and Diana to say thank you for all our hard work and then went on a wine tour. It was so interesting and I now know what temperature my white wine should be at and why cask wine gives you a headache, you wouldnt want to know how many times it gets pressed. SO we have gone from the beginning in the vineyards and now know how it is processed. At the end we got to taste some of the wine, (not great with a hangover) but still a great expereience and we tasted it how the professionals would with the smelling, swishing around the mouth it was funny. Then to finish we had chocolate cheesecake so we were spoilt rotten.
Packing had been interesting it will be strange to be living out of a bag again, cant believe there is only 8 weeks left till we are back in England the time has gone so fast but we are having a ball and only more to come now.
Love to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
